Photographer's Note

Taken from a small layby / viewpoint a couple of miles west of the Forth / Queensferry bridges. I like the contrast between the ultra modern Queensferry Crossing and the beautiful old Forth rail Bridge. Almost hidden between can be seen the tower of the Forth Road bridge, now only used for public service vehicles.
It seems ironic to me that the Rail Bridge, built nearly 130 years ago is still going strong, whilst the original Road Bridge, built only in the mid 1960's is considered unsafe for large numbers of vehicles. I wonder how long the new bridge will last? There was some form of repair work being undertaken when we were there, and the bridge only opened a year ago.
